Gourmet Meals has been busy in the kitchen cooking up some warming winter dishes! These meals will satisfy all your winter comfort food cravings. Plus they have a healthy dose of vitamins and nutrients.
Food. We all love it. And Gourmet Meals are at the expert level. They deliver healthy, nutritious, and great-tasting frozen meals to your door. The company is an approved NDIS provider of home-delivered meals. This means that home delivery of these meals is part-funded under the NDIS. If you are eligible, two-thirds of the cost-plus delivery will be covered by the NDIS. Gourmet Meals are very competitively priced and taste like good old-fashioned home cooking. They have launched a new winter menu…so let’s have a taste!
Kick-off your meal with starters like Minestrone Soup, an Italian vegetable soup made with tomato-based beef stock, potato, beans and pasta. Warming and delicious.
Of the main courses, our favourite is the Beef Goulash, a hearty beef stew slow-cooked in an aromatic sauce served with roast potatoes, Brussel sprouts, and a cauliflower bake.
Another option is the Moroccan Lamb. It is pulled lamb slow cooked with exotic Middle Eastern spices served on a bed of rice, chickpeas, dried apricot and almonds.
You might want to satisfy your pork cravings with a tender and tasty Pork Roast with Apple Sauce. This comes with potato wedges, broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower on the side. Or you can party like a pescatarian with the Salmon Chive Sauce – a fillet of salmon in a creamy chive sauce, potato stack, green beans, broccoli and Asian greens.
Check out the delicious sweet treats, like Apple Rhubarb. It’s the perfect winter comfort dessert served with custard and topped with a sprinkling of sweet crumble. ■
WINTER HEALTHY EATING
Studies indicate that we tend to eat more during the winter months. There are a few reasons for this.
■ With the drop in temperature, our body has to work doubly hard to keep itself warm. That’s why we end up craving high-carb foods and desserts. The sugar and starch in these foods provide our body the heat it requires.
■ We tend to drink less water in winter because the cold temperature reduces thirst. We mistake our body’s thirst for hunger and eat more food when we just need to drink some water.
■ “Winter blues” hit. A significant number of people actually suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and this makes them eat more.
There is no reason not to give in to your winter comfort food cravings, as long as less nutritious foods are eaten in moderation and your overall diet is healthy and balanced to ensure you feel your best all winter long.
